The Real James Randi
Tim Cridland AKA Zamora the Torture King
I have done it now. My critique of former magician turned professional skeptic James Randi has finally been published in The Anomalist print edition #14. This is a mini bio of James Randi, born Randall Zwinge. One review accurately states “Cridland suggests that Randi's past is much more ambiguous than that of the pure hearted crusader against paranormal pornography which he now portrays himself.” It has taken years to find a publisher with the guts to print this. The debunker is debunked in the overview of the life of The Amazing Randi. I don't have to have the powers of Criswell to know that I will lose friends for writing this (or at least confuse some) and gain some new ones. This may hurt me financially. I will experience “the sensation of being glared at.” Some will point at me while yelling “Woo!” Some people won't like what they read but before YOU judge it read it and check the sources. You will be surprised by what you learn.My article “The Real James Randi” (not my original title) is included in Anomalist 14.
